Dr Alex George has opened up about being torn apart from his girlfriend while bravely fighting coronavirus on the frontline.

The former Love Island star, 29, said it's not been easy coming home to an empty flat as he made the decision to live alone during this pandemic to protect his beau Amelia Bath.

Alex revealed the issues he's facing at the moment in a new YouTube video, in which he candidly touched on the tragedies he's witnessed at his busy Lewisham hospital.

He told his fans: “My shift is now finished and I am just heading home. It's been again a busy shift – I know I keep saying this but it is the truth."

He continued: "I am feeling alright, I am tired. One of the challenges is that I am away from my girlfriend, I made the decision that I didn't want to risk giving it to her or her family, so I am up in London staying on my own – isolating and she is staying elsewhere so I don’t give it to her.

"That is difficult when you have a busy shift like today you want to go home and sit and chat with someone and just hang out with someone to relax after what happened, it's hard when you can't and you are on your own."

He added: "Technology is good, being able to FaceTime and chat to people. I try and share as much of my experience as I can because it does help, even doing these videos as well, telling you guys how I feel and what I am doing does help me get through a challenging time."

And his flame Amelia has been endlessly proud of her man for all the work he's doing in efforts to flatten the curve of the deadly bug.

The brunette bombshell is currently staying in Dorset, but the distance hasn't stopped her from gushing over the former reality TV star.

"Meanwhile, Alex ran around Lewisham hospital treating Covid-19 patients. I'm so proud of him and I'm endlessly grateful for all the NHS staff and key workers who are working tirelessly during such uncertain times."
